Otherwise, the testing wouldn't really be representative of normal use.
I don't have any way of raising the case yet, but I might if I can find a good product for doing so, and somewhere to buy it from.
Use the Fractal Design supplied controller. Think it will do 3 fans so use it for intakes.

Is back top vent open?

2 pieces of 50x50mm wood 250mm long would work for testing.. or 4 kids wooden blocks... or anything similar. wink.gif

Where are you located? might be able to help with caster base.

Edit: or some spacers to put between feet and case with longer mounting screws wink.gif

Does that include the Phanteks?

A run with side cover off would give us an idea of how well fans are supplying air to cooler. wink.gif

yah i didn't see that. so i guess that's just the nature of the beast. ivy is that much hotter then sandy.. something to get used to i suppose. it's still pretty scary considering he removed the IHS and using a bare chip which means there is no question in the performance of the intel TIM. it's gonna be interesting to see what they do with haswell/broadwell generation chips... because as it stands the thermal density is going to be MUCH higher then right now. will we be looking at micro heatpipes imbedded into a gold plated IHS? biggrin.gif would be kinda cool to have a "gold plated chip" biggrin.gif

Yeah, I read something about R4 having a built-in fan controller, but I haven't seen any such thing. How does that work? Does the case have fan headers and some sort of power connector I can connect them to instead of the MB?

If you mean the two fan mounts on top of the case, then no, they are closed at the moment. I had them open with the other CPU to test, but I don't think it made much difference. I'd prefer to keep it closed to avoid dust and the possibility things falling through the top.

Yeah, I guess I could raise it by simply placing it on top of something temporarily.

I guess I'll try the X method then. Any suggestions to how big the X should be? I'm thinking not very big.

the amount of TIM you see in the pic is about the right amount. maybe just a hair more if you are paranoid.

LOL
You have PM

With 3x 140mm intake fans moving air into case 2x 140mm exhaust vents (one with fan) will allow maximum airflow and no dust will be drawn in. The other vent holes in back will also be exhausting air but not very fast.

My case has both top vents open and no dust gets in. At first I have 2x Silverstone 140mm magnetic filters on top vents but took them off when they didn't collect any dust.
